Ruling on and disposing of the money remaining from the one third

A: The ruling on the remainder of the estate's third after buying the building mentioned above is the same as that on money out of which the building was bought. That is: it is to be spent on buying a property or building an annex (Part No. 16; Page No. 392) to the existing building, if it is valid to do so, under the supervision of the court according to usually adopted procedures. As for the revenue in all cases, the ruling on which has been explained in the previous Fatwa, No. (7286), which provides that heirs are not entitled to the revenue and it is to be spent on charitable purposes. However, poor people among heirs or non-heir relatives may be given charity out of the revenue. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
